If you have oily skin that is prone to breaking out, or if you’ve had a lot of struggles with keeping your skin clear, calm and free of redness, acne, bumps and inflammation, then this 100% chemical free natural acne soap is for you.
No parabens, no drying sulfates, no phthalates, and 100% petroleum free. The biggest challenge in successfully cleaning acne prone or oily skin and cleansing it properly is to deeply cleanse and kill surface and pore-deep bacteria without over drying it.
They use “brute force” via harsh detergents like sodium laurel sulfate and other harsh sulfates and skin reddening ingredients in an effort to remove acne causing bacteria and surface sebum. This is exactly the wrong way to effectively cleanse acne prone or overly oily skin. The more you dry out and irritate acne prone skin, the more your skin naturally fights back by producing EVEN MORE SEBUM, or oil.
This leads to a vicious cycle of over-drying, excessive sebum production, increased inflammation and even more acne breakouts. This natural acne soap gently and deeply cleans the pores and can be used for facial or body acne. It contains high levels of very powerful, all natural anti-bacterial and acne-healing agents.

Active ingredients in our skin-calming, blemish-fighting soap:
Lavender – Long valued as a soothing essential oil, lavender’s potent natural anti-bacterial benefits were overlooked. Lavender not only promotes “calm skin” and a calm mood, but it is a very powerful natural antibacterial agent which targets acne causing bacteria and eliminates it.
It is highly useful not just in topical application, but also as a sensory stimulant. Studies have shown that just inhaling this essential oil causes positive changes in the brain’s chemistry.
Lavender relaxes the mood and causes feelings of well being and positive, alert awareness, which translates into better focus and reduced anxiety and depression. It is indeed a powerful essential oil, and it is one of the primary ingredients in our all natural acne soap.
Tea Tree Oil – As another potent anti bacterial and toning agent, we add tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is found in the Australian plant of the same name. It came to light as an excellent natural acne treatment after it had been used by Australian aboriginals for healing skin cuts, burns, and infections.
They would simply crush the naturally potent leaves and apply them to the affected area. Because tea tree oil also is a natural healing salve, it can also help to heal any existing infected pores. Tea tree has a naturally medicinal smell that is somewhat camphorous (of the mint family).
Lemongrass – Another essential oil that contributes to this all natural acne soap is lemongrass. Lemongrass is excellent for oily skin, as it acts as a natural tonifier, removing oil and leaving the skin feeling refreshed and supple. The naturally crisp citrus scent is energizing, and it is another natural chemical that is used to elevate mood.
Finally, our all natural acne soap does not contain any sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). This is an irritating “surfactant” that uses harsh chemicals originally used in industrial floor and surface cleaners to strip the skin of surface oil and dirt. It often backfires by over drying the skin and causing more irritation, the last thing acne prone skin needs.
Instead, we use all natural ingredients to get deep down in the pores, remove bacteria and sebum, and keep the pores clean and clear while maintaining a smooth and supple texture. The delicate lathering agent is derived from skin-soothing fatty acids which support the moisture balance of the skin.
